    Connecting with Joy — and Angels, part 1

    You may remember Sheri Perbeck from episode 23, and recall our conversation regarding celestial beings, angels, and other forms of communication. Sheri and I wanted to do a special series together that can bring encouragement and positivity, as well as practical ideas during a time the world faces historic challenges.

    In this series, I’m taking a more active role than interviewer and share more of the insight and messages I have. Together, we will leave you with suggestions on how to remain empowered at a time that may feel restricted.
    If you have questions or topics you’d like to hear in upcoming episodes, please contact either of us (info in show note links).
